Celebrity Big Brother host Emma Willis has teased a "stellar" lineup for the new series of the show.

Returning to our screens next month, CBB is back in January with a brand new set of celebrities entering the compound.

And, having had a sneak peek at who will be going in, Emma has said there won't be a single celeb we don't recognise...

Speaking about the Celebrity Big Brother launch set to air on 7 January, Emma has promised this series is going to be the show's best one yet.

She said: "I have such high hopes for the series – that's how good I think it's going to be. You won't not recognise [any housemate] if it stays like this.

"This year seems like a proper stellar cast and that's always great to watch."

And, with stars like Calum Best, Katie Hopkins and X Factor's Chloe-Jasmine Whichello rumoured to be on the list, we're already getting excited!

But, who would Emma love to see walk through those doors?

"In a dream scenario and I'm thinking big." she says. "I'd start with Paul O'Grady because he's just funny and I'd love to watch him all day.

"Lindsay Lohan would be great and she's always rumoured. I always wanted Joan Rivers to go in – she would have been amazing. I do realise this is never going to happen now, but I would love somebody like Tom Cruise."

So far only a few details have been revealed when it comes to the new series, but what we do know is that Celebrity Big Brother will be taken on a 'Twisted Fairytale' theme this time round.

Show bosses have warned housemates they "will not be living happily ever after" inside the house, and the latest CBB pictures promise a sinister looking show this time around.

Explaining the house will take on more of a "dark fairytale", host Emma is hoping to channel her inner Maleficent for launch night!

"I think I actually want to dress up for the launch night," Emma admitted. "I'd love to be the wicked, but tortured Queen."

Now that we would love to see!

While Emma claimed she hasn't yet seen inside the house, Channel 5 have said the CBB compound will include ""whimsical elements that conjure up a magical atmosphere full of possibility and curiosity, but there are hints that something more sinister may be lurking".

We. Can't. Wait.

Celebrity Big Brother will air on 7 January on Channel 5.
